sustainable promises

Sustainability is one of our key values. It is important to us that our artisans are securely in sustainable employment and that every part of each product they get to make at Voice HQ stas been sourced with care, contributing to the care of our planet!

Sourced with care

True sustainable decisions require transparency. Below you'll find where we source all our raw materials.

Brass

Our 2022 goal was to move our brass supply from the UK to East Africa. It is important to us that as much of our product as possible is sourced locally, so this has been a great acheivement for us. All our raw brass wires and sheet metal is now sourced in Kenya, supporting small businesses specialising in raw metals. It makes it's way over to Kampala by bus where we are then able to handcraft our designs.

Ecosilver

Our Recycled silver is currently still sourced within the UK and then shipped to Uganda for making. We purchase our silver from trusted retailer : Cooksongold. It is also a future goal to purchase all silver from within East Africa once we have researched and tested a trusted source.

Ankole

Ankole is a byproduct of cow horn. This beautifully unique horn is sourced and handcrafted into shapes we design in Kampala. To do this we work with our friends at East African Trading Co to bring our designs to life.

Using Ankole in our designs provides a second income stream to agricultural farmers in the Cattle industry. Rather than burning and wasting this material it is recycled and transformed into stunning homeware & jewellery!

Beads

Our beads are made from paper. Yes PAPER! We love to use traditional skills across our collections. Paper is printed in the colours we choose, cut to perfection and rolled tightly to the size and shapes we choose. Take a look at our 'How To' video here!

Findings

At present our our findinds are sourced within the UK to ensure the credibility of using Sterling Silver / Gold Plated. All findings are Nickel & Lead free.

Rattan, sisal & fabrics

Our natural Rattan & Sisal are sourced from Northern Uganda and our fabrics are sourced from downtown Kampala supporting small businesses hence the small production runs of clothing and accessories.
